Why do so many incompetent men become leaders
Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, a psychologist and chief talent scientist at ManpowerGroup, says we’re not picking leaders in the right way. While we should be promoting people based on their competence and potential, it’s often the incompetent, overconfident candidates — most of them men — who get ahead. Studies show that, by many measures, women are actually better equipped to become strong, successful managers. But the solution to getting more of them into the executive ranks isn’t quotas or other initiatives that mandate gender diversity. To improve leadership across the board, we need to focus on the metrics proven to enhance performance and set higher standards for everyone. Chamorro-Premuzic is also a professor of business psychology at University College London and Columbia University, and the author of the book.https://hbr.org/ideacast/2019/03/why-are-we-still-promoting-incompetent-men
Physical Punishment: A Cultural Practice?
Research shows that not only is the use physical violence as discipline unnecessary, but it may even increase children’s aggression and create problems into adulthood. How do we educate parents on the unnecessary use of physical violence to discipline children without insulting their cultural values or practices? Many cultures find physical punishment to be a completely normal method of discipline. Is this acceptable? Why or why not?
Should We Play It Cool When We Like Someone?
One of the paradoxes of the dating game is that we know that by coming across as enthusiastic at an early stage – if we ring them the next day, if we are open about how attractive we find them, if we suggest meeting them again very soon – we are putting ourselves at a high risk of disgusting the very person we would so like to get to know better. It is in order to counter this risk that, early on in our dating lives we are taught by well-meaning friends to adopt a facade of indifference. We become experts at deliberately not phoning or sending messages, at treating our dates in a carefully off-hand manner and in subtly pretending we don’t much care if we never cross their paths again – while privately pining and longing. We are told that the only way to get them to care about us is to pretend not to care for them. And, in the process, we waste a lot of time, we may lose them altogether and we have to suffer the indignity of denying that we feel a desire that should never have been associated with shame in the first place.https://www.theschooloflife.com/thebookoflife/should-we-play-it-cool-when-we-like-someone/
